    1. Zombies!!! Non lucid ★★★★★

      by , 08-14-2013 at 10:43 PM (Zödra)
      Holy Crap! Realistic zombie dream! Did a lot of things that were exactly the right decision. Watching myself slowly die is always weird though. I shall give you the 4 part dreams as one story after connecting it together. The Purple is the latest in chronology, the blue is the past. It is hard to split this dream up, because I had the previous dreams prior to this one, but during this one, I thought about the prior dreams.

      I wake up in my bed. It is really cold, but I wait. I am really hungry, but I wait. The noises outside have stopped, but I wait.

      It all started when me and Laura had rushed home after hearing that there was a zombie attack ongoing and that everyone would have to fend for themselves. We boarded up the windows and stayed there as long as we could. In the day times I could hear the neighbors making their movements and trying to get away from Zombies, hoping that they would have the advantage of the light. Lots of them got met right outside of their door and eaten. At night time the zombies would look for ways into the house through windows, biting people when they slept. A couple of neighbors wanted lodgings since we had boarded up our windows. I let them stay in the living room cautiously. That was the night that the zombies found enough reason to break in. I realized that they were attracted to noise. They could break into our house easily, but would not do so unless they knew that there was someone there. The people got bit and I woke up with a zombie right next to me. I fought it in hand to hand combat trying not to get grabbed, and not to get bit. My wife tossed me the gun and I blew its brains out, along with the two in the hallway.
      "To my parents house" I yell at Laura. The door to the apartment isn't open, and I can hear zombies outside. I have Laura get the shotgun and I have my Glock. I open the door silently. There is a zombie 15 feet away from me with its back to me. I motion to Laura and we head the other way. The zombies are less dense than they normally are, but it is morning time. They don't really sleep in the mornings, but they seem slower. Probably the only reason I stayed alive.


      Awake. My arm is injured, but I wait. silence is more important than my well being. I could die from a wound, but I would die if I made too much noise.

      We make the 20 minute drive to my parents house. Not that many cars on the road, since the zombie attack happened so quickly, 2/3 of Kansas had died in the first day, we had heard when the radio towers and internet were still up. We made it to my parents house, and it seemed like they had a lookout, because they opened the garage door as we pulled near their second garage. They shut the garage door and used big sticks to beat off the zombie that had run in when it opened.


      Awake. I look at the fan on the ceiling. Laura always liked having it on. It would be off for a long time. Of course it had been like that for the week that we spent here together after the zombies initial attack too. Amazing how at that time I had wanted things to go back like they were, but now I just wish she was here in the apartment with me. We didn't stay with my parents long, because they were almost out of food...


      We went on the road and kept having to siphon gas out of other cars. Since there were so many dead, it was easy to find enough. I would say that 75% of the people were alive now. It kept getting more and more rare to see people. A sign on the side of the road "Zombie outlet store- get your zombie survival help here!" We decided to stop, because honestly, we could use a bit of help. The store was filled with people that seemed to band together to make a strong group. They had taken a few hardware stores and grocery stores and thrown everything together into one huge hangar. They said that they would help us for a small fee. I honestly don't remember the fee, but I do remember that the store was so big that they told us to make sure that we had a way to fight off the zombies that were in it. They said that they lose like 20 customers a day, even with the sweeper, a noise making machine that would kill anything that got too close to it. Maybe they didn't charge us, now that I think about it. Maybe they had found this place and wanted to help people without. They told us that they would be overrun in a few days. More and more of them had been coming at night and they didn't have any more ammo. They were using big hardware tools and some random swords that they had gotten. We left there after fixing the car and found out that they had done something to the car to make it quit on us about 50 miles away.


      Awake. I hear a noise. The slow walk of zombie that hasn't found any food in a while. He would be dangerous if he heard one sound. I am going to stay here, lying in bed as long as I can. I will wait.

      After the car quit, we all took our portions and were planning on leaving the state of Kansas. After a lot of debate we decided to go to Texas. We got another car and made it back to the city we live in. We should have driven around it, the amount of people infected was probably 99% in this city now. The density of zombies had gotten much higher. It seemed like there was almost no one left in the city. We all scattered. They hopefully regrouped.


      Awake. I open my eyes. My last thoughts of how I got here. I told the group that if one of us was lost, that we should still make the group trip to Texas and come back with more resources. If the person could, he would wait in his own house (apartment for me), if not, he would go to the others house. We had an order to it and all. I am waiting in my apartment for them to return. It has been days since I moved. I had had enough food for a few weeks time, but I only had 3 days left. When you are starving your body doesn't tell you that it is hungry till you are about to die of hunger. I would need to wait here for as long as possible and need to be strong when I left. I decided to starve myself now and conserve energy until I was about to die. I would then plan on going to Texas. Even if they couldn't make it back, we had a place to meet. I looked up at the ceiling. Laying in bed without moving for days and days, hoping that I don't miss my opportunity to eat. Being here alone is so much worse than when I was here with Laura I thought the sound of the bones breaking as Zombies feasted on the neighbors in the hallway was bad, but when there are no neighbors left. That is when you start to realize that there is no hope left.


      I woke up for real, amazed at the dream. I had doubled those dreams as dreams and then as memories in a dream, and I had woken up hundreds of times in my bed staring at the ceiling, not wanting to move to conserve energy. I had felt worse and worse and more like I was going to die until the very end. I am lying still from after the dream, haha, just like the dream. I think about trying to DEILD, but then my alarm goes off. I eat a bit of cereal and get dressed for work. I look over at the locked door. There is no sound out there, but this door had been thought about so much in my dream. I was a little afraid to go out and go to work.

    2. Good Book Idea. ★★★★★

      by , 06-12-2013 at 04:50 AM (Zödra)
      This dream is a little of a mixture of once upon a time, tsubasa reservoir chronicles, and yu yu hakusho. A little lucid at the end. It is a telling of how far I would go for my beloved wife.

      I am at a dinner table. My family and Laura (my wife) are there. I am a bit older. My mind is programmed with a different past, I am in 100% control and my mind is 100% there like most dreams. It is just a reprogrammed past and my "ego".

      My programmed past:
      Someone has taken away all of the world's memories of Laura snd me together. No one except for me remembers it. A spell has been cast that says that she won't remember me, and I will die if I tell her. I had to look for her at first and reintroduce myself, get to know her, be a friend first (like I did the first time). She doesn't trust me very much though, because the spell left her with a sad past of her husband leaving her and abandoning her and and their daughter (which of course is my daughter that is due tomorrow ) So she is kind of a hurt woman. She hasn't told me any of this, but the warlock did. She hasn't even told me about her having a daughter. She seems ashamed of the fact that she had a failed marriage.

      I look at Laura sitting next to me. It has been a year already, how long would I have to wait till I could have my wife back again? She was laughing at all my family (and brother in-laws. They are pretty much normal since they just lost the memory of us together. Laura seems so happy with all of us here, she can tell that she belongs here. After dinner I walk her to the car. A few child's toys in the back that she tried to hide say that my daughter is about 4. I haven't seen her yet since the spell was cast, I wish Laura would introduce us so I can see her again.

      "That was really fun!" Laura says as we get to her car.
      "Yeah. Are you coming to the show and games tonight?" I ask as she rolls the window down.
      "Maybe. I'll have to see if..." She pauses, trying to think of a good way to explain "maybe." She smiles at me. I can barely stop myself from jumping in the car and holding her, telling her that she doesn't need to worry, and that I will always be there for her and never leave her.

      She drives away and I start a long walk to the theater where the "play and games" will be at. Doesn't take me long to get there, I think time skipped a bit here. I know I was walking so I could think and pray. I do that a lot because of how much I have to think about.

      I step into the theater, sit down next to my mom. Not really paying much attention to her or the rest of my family because I am thinking of Laura and looking for her. The "play" is someone reading the script of the movie "you've got mail" they spend a long time reading and it is booooooring. Halfway through they realize they have been reading the wrong thing and decide to stop and play a game. They start explaining and Laura walks in. She sits next to my sister and I am frustrated that I didn't save a seat for her. I look for my wallet because it seems to have gone missing.

      The game starts and everyone is rummaging through candy aisles. I find my wallet, and notice a spell. No one else would have seen it unless they were acquainted with them. I jump to the ground and everyone is locked in a never ending game. Except me and the warlock.

      He is far too powerful for me to fight, I learned that the first time. I know how to escape a spell or two, but he could kill me in a second if he wished. He didn't want that though. I followed him outside and we sat by a tree and started talking.

      "You've been doing well." He says. He is like a tall rumplestiltskin.
      "You mean I have passed your tests?"
      "When this started I would have said you had no chance of being with your wife ever again. Now I am not so sure." Hr pauses and looks at me "I would say that you would stop at nothing to be with her. I literally sent a menacing demon after you and you somehow escaped. Not to mention all the roadblocks I have put between you two."

      He pulls out a spell paper and sets it on my skin.

      "I could curse your body and keep you away from her." He makes me cursed as he says this. My skin turns green and flaky like a dead man "I could make you unbearable to be around." He makes my skin reek worse than a skunk. "Or!" He snaps and my skin goes normal "I could make you unrecognizable!" He pulls out a different sheet that has skins on it. Changes my skin color to jet black, but he changes it back "but... I am not going to do that. I was gonna make a fortune off tonight, not just off of screwing with your story." He walks away slowly.

      I pull my wallet out and grab fifty dollars. "It isn't much, but I want it there as a help to you. When people do good things and it costs them they end up regretting it, and I want you to have a little of what you would have had."

      He snaps and my money disappears and my wallet. "That wasn't your wallet. Your wallet is in the back of your pants." I pull out my real wallet. "No, I don't need your money, I am not so forgetful as a human is."

      He had switched all the people's wallets out of their pockets with a simple hiding spell. He would have gotten all of them throughout the night as the games continued. But not anymore.

      We walk up to the door to get in "I put a timed spell on this. You are better at breaking spells than I am, how would you get in if you needed to?" He asks.

      I am dreaming... I think as I walk up to the door. I wonder how much has been a dream. I might as well finish this story as much as possible, I would love to see where it ends.
      "I would do this." I put my finger through the glass and when it is halfway through the glass I pull out and it shatter part of the glass.
      "What spell is that?" He says, attempting the same. I mumble something and wake up. A little sad, but happy to see Laura next to me.

    3. Two Weeks of Dream Time. Non lucid ★★★★★

      by , 03-19-2013 at 04:16 AM (Zödra)
      Before starting this dream I want to say that I am really in love with my wife, and she is the most beautiful woman I have ever met. This is actually relevant to my dream, so don't think I am being crazy sappy. I love her personality more than any other person I have met, so that is why this dream is soooo weird.

      Day 1:
      starting off, I am going on some sort of strange vacation. Don't know how long I will be gone, but I don't have any lodgings at first because the "credit company that is paying for this" hadn't given us a room yet. I am with a few other guys and one girl. We were in a huge mall and just kind of wondering around the first day. No where to stay because the "credit company" had kind of forgotten about us. They had a booth at the mall that I will return to later. The first day we all split up and tried to find a place to stay. Don't remember finding any though. I think I just stayed at the mall.

      Day 2:
      We met up and all walked around the mall together. The one girl in the group looks exactly like my wife and acts exactly like her as well. Very strange thing to meet. We talked for a long amount of time and I could tell she could like me (easy to tell since she acts just like my wife). She was interested a lot in the fact that she was exactly like my wife, and about my life. Talked with her pretty much all of the day. Went around to the credit place as well and went to a few places around town for lunch and dinner. Normal places to eat.

      Day 3-6:
      Pretty much like Day 2 :/ Not much difference except the getting to know the girl and talking with the other people more. Pretty much living at the huge mall there and actually having a great time even though we were homeless. Just paying for food isn't that bad.

      Day 7:
      Got a place to stay! The credit people finally found a place for all of us to stay. The only problem is (if you watch any anime or read manga you know where this is going ) there is only two rooms and she. 1 bed in one room, 2 in the other, 6 people, one girl. The other guys were a bit creepy, actually a few of them were people I used to know, and 2 of them are just creepy friends I know. haha. Anyways, you know what it is like when meeting someone that you just "click" with, hanging out, talking all the time, staying up late at night talking.

      Day 8-12:
      Hanging with the people for a long time, every day. Meeting new people at the mall and the "credit place" was taking care of all the meals while we were in town since we were basically on the street the first week. They had a bunch of weird games at the specific place that they let us play for free. Here is the best one:
      Laser Tag Hunting
      Hunting different animals in the mall with laser tag. There is parts that are like "the wild", but the best version is the one that you just go through the mall. Started noticing all the different fake animals flying around with targets on them. Don't know exactly how they got the birds to fly, but I played this game most days and multiple times a day.

      The rest of them were a collection of games from carnivals and Zelda games (You know the ones!)
      Want into an LD?-250px-bombchubowling_lady.jpgWant into an LD?-mqdefault.jpgWant into an LD?-zday4.jpg

      Some fun times! Pretty much each day was close to the same, so they blur together, and you probably know how hard it is to recall specific conversations from a dream.

      Day 13:
      Hanging out with some random guy that came to the mall. He was telling me about something at the mall he loved doing. He took me across the mall. We were running (normal for me to run from one place to another). I was on the second floor and watched as a lady that looked like Meredith from the office run as well. She must have hit a slick spot because she slid and landed flat on her face. I started laughing a ton.
      Want into an LD?-kateflannery1.jpg

      We started going to the credit place. I told him that I had been there quite a few times and then we went to dinner with my group and told him our story.

      Night of the 13th:
      Gotta remember a few things here. Looks like my wife, acts like my wife, been sleeping in the same bed for a week, not been sleeping with my wife in two weeks.

      After a long day of hanging at the most awesome mall in the world I get to my room. She is laying in the bed under the covers. I get in bed with the light still on and she starts talking to me.
      "It is really weird that your wife looks exactly like me." She says.
      "Yeah... Well accept she is pregnant with my daughter." I say.
      "Then this makes me feel a little bad about this, but I can't really help it." She flips the covers off and everything goes black. The light illuminates her standing on the bed somehow. She is wearing a blue maid outfit.
      Want into an LD?-blue-rose.jpg
      ^^That color blue. She is staring at me with those "Come hither" eyes. She is ridiculously beautiful and I am really worried that I can't stop myself. I am thinking of what to say and hope she doesn't jump me, because I can stop myself from attacking her. If she jumps on me... I know I can't stop her. As I am contemplating I notice that her face starts changing and getting more and more make up on until she doesn't look like my wife at all. Then I kind of blanked out. Nothing happened though. :/

      Day 14
      I woke up the next day and I took the train to the mall. I was running to get some breakfast with my friend K and then I saw the gal that looked like meredith run and fall on her face again. This time I couldn't help myself I fell on the ground laughing. I couldn't even breathe. I am sorry, watching people wipe out in person is just one of the best things to see. I went to the credit place to check out and head home. Wake up.

      Notes about the dream:
      Same mall as a couple other dreams have been in in my past. A few non lucids and 2 lucids. I have only been there at night before. All really memorable dreams. Crazy crazy dreams. There is a movie theater that only runs at night and there are about a million small businesses and a lot of them are crazy and the building would shift sideways and you would fall on the wall. You really can't go to the mall unless you are actually young and in good shape or you can get injured by the constant running and the weird stores. I plan on going there in some lucids. Being in there for 2 weeks was amazing.

    4. Dream Army Base ★★★★★

      by , 03-03-2013 at 06:54 PM (Zödra)
      Date: 3/3/2013
      Total sleep: 9 hours
      Daytime Techniques: ADA (my version), meditation (visual, 20 minutes)
      Lucid Techniques: MILD
      Fell Asleep: 11:30
      Dream Title: Crazy fun
      Dream:
      It is a pretty normal dream, but then I decide to go to sleep and try to WILD. I lay down and instantly teleport to the Dream Army Base (at the time I thought that I had WILDed, but then I realized that I had not. This is actually just a variation of how I teleport and how I WILD, which are similar enough for this to happen in my dreams)I go outside to the forest and travel through to a town. The sky is red, and I am pretty sure that it is night, and the sky is that way so I can see and so that I know that it is dangerous around there. I travel and a cat-girl meets me. Extremely cute. I think for a second that she is an extra, but she doesn't have that vibe. She tells me that she is going to show me a safe place and takes me upstairs. I ask her how the town got ruined and she says that a different girl like her has ruined it. I know that the girl must be an extra.

      Dreaming: Right vs. Left Brain-anime-girl.gif
      Awake: Not really sure
      Vividness: 12
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 20 minutes
      Emotions: Holy awesome crap!


      Fell Asleep: Not really sure
      Dream Title: Extremely dangerous
      Dream:
      I wake up and lay still and DEILD. I am not sure if I actually woke up or if it was just going back to the other layer of my dream (I know that dreams don't actually work in layers, but if you fall asleep in a FA, and then wake up later you have a higher chance of another FA IMO). I appear away from the cat-gal. I am in the streets. There are not many people. I go into a grocery store and hide there. There is a lot of people in a room up the stairs in the back and they are hiding. The catgirl comes in. This is a different one than before. I create a barrier to save all the people I am with out of a red ribbon about an inch off the ground (2.54 centimeters). I step in it, but only have the barrier part, not the teleportation part activate. I ask her what she wants and she says that chaos is the only fun she can have. I step out of the barrier and teleport the people back to the base (sorry, they were all clean. I take them away later). I attack the girl and she dodges. She runs away from me and I chase after her. I force shove her as she is running and she almost gets knocked over. I can't seem to throw a fireball, so I think of another thing that will work. "Incendio!" I cry. It shoots fire and she dodges and get burned a little. She disappears behind some houses. Drat. Almost had her. Awake.
      Awake: Dunno
      Vividness: 12
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 15 minutes
      Emotions: excitement

      Fell Asleep: impossible to tell
      Dream Title: Make sure everyone is ok
      Dream:
      I do the same as last and I still don't know if I woke up. I will count it though. Back at the Dream army base. I notice all the people are gone I must have teleported them away. I thought. I jumped into the red ribbon and appeared at the grocery store. The good Cat-girl was there.
      "You shouldn't leave the ribbon because it is too dangerous." She says. Her smile never falling from her face.
      "I am not afraid of anyone out there." I say. I know that I have to treat dreams as real as possible to keep them realistic, so I don't say why.
      "It is much more powerful," she says "they are not happy with you."
      "Are the people alright?" I ask.
      "I led them home." She replies.
      I watch the city through a window. It has somehow gotten darker and more evil looking. I want to save the city from this darkness, but I also want to take the advice of the local. She doesn't know what I am capable of, but I know that I should limit myself before I demolish the other catgirl.

      Awake: Not sure
      Vividness: 13
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 15 minutes
      Emotions: A little creepy (these aren't really emotions, but it is the general feeling of the dream.

      I think about writing down my dreams, but decide that it was too fun to forget. I RC and go back to sleep.

      Fell Asleep: Forgot to check
      Dream Title: Crazy neighborhood
      Dream:
      I feel the same way I did the last few times like I WILD into it, but I do not realize it is a dream. I do not know how, but my dream got me to think that I was in a video game instead. I am in a different place. It reminds me of my parents neighborhood. I run around and the idea of the previous dream lingers a little. I am fighting an army and I need to win. I do not know why though. I run into a leader and he lets me know that wolfmen (opposite of cute catgirls) are running around and we need to defeat them. I spend a long time going over lame strategies with him that make no sense. I wake up. I am in a room with some friends of mine and telling them about the "game" I was just playing. They said that they are in it too. I jump in and out of the dream multiple times and talk to my friends. Nothing big happens till the end when I get out of the dream and am talking to someone when all of the sudden I feel something behind me. I turn around and I automatically know that it is one of the strongest wolfmen (They look more like wolves, but walk upright). It has a bat and swings it at me. I dodge and it hits a door frame I was standing in. I kick at him and grab the bat. Spin around and while peeling it from his claws I swing it and hit him in the head. A little confused about how he got out of the game I wake up for real.

      Dreaming: Right vs. Left Brain-werewolf.jpg
      Awake: 8:00 AM
      Vividness: 10
      Awareness: 9 (I was really really close)
      Length: an hour or more
      Emotions: a bit scared, mostly having fun


      Notes: Google search that image for a full size image of that cat-girl. It is uncanny how similar she looks to the dream girl except the dream girl wasn't animated.

    5. NAP TIME = Lucid time. ★★★★☆

      by , 03-03-2013 at 01:01 AM (Zödra)
      So, I haven't been lucid in a few days... I was a little sad. I think it is because work has been making me work late, so I knew that my I was going to bed too tired to DILD. I just thought of it this afternoon though, that if I am physically tired from work, I should be better at WILDing! So my wife wanted to take a nap this afternoon and I joined. The way I WILD is a little weird. I feel like when the dream starts I do not have enough anchor in the dream to stay in it, so I just watch. I was trying over and over to WILD, but I would slip into a dream and when I tried to move, I would only move my real body. Also note, that when I was trying to WILD a huge pain came in my head and I imagined doing eternal backflips through space. Then a dreamscene would apear, but I would wait till my dream self would move around enough to stabilize me, then I would quickly stabilize.

      Date: 3/3/2013
      Total sleep: hour and a half
      Daytime Techniques: meditation (visual), ADA (my form)
      Lucid Techniques: WILD (I use my mantra as an anchor, so if I fail, I still have my mantra)
      Fell Asleep: 3:30 PM
      Dream Title: Workout
      Dream:
      I am in an underground army base and there is workout equipment everywhere. I am very aware that I am dreaming, but I just watch to see what dream me does (this is actually quite fun... I recommend it, next time you realize you are dreaming, surrender control to your subconscious). I am jumping on the equipment and I realize that I jumped about 15 feet in the air up and 20 feet out. I know that this isn't a big deal, but the guy down there asks me how I did it. I tell him that it is because it is a dream and he tells me I should show "her" that. I take control of my body and look at my hands to stabilize. The dream is fading and I decide I didn't want to be lucid underground anyways, so I will DEILD.
      Awake: impossible to know
      Vividness: 8
      Awareness: lucid
      Length: 5 minutes
      Emotions: none

      Lucid Techniques: DEILD
      Fell Asleep: impossible to know
      Dream Title: a little confused, but dream wife takes priority over other tasks.
      Dream:
      I am back where I just came from, a little disappointed, but I realize my wife is there, so I am okay with that. I tell her to follow me. We go up stairs and there is an enormous room overlooking a beach. There is a huge glass in our way, but we both faze through it. We walk around to the side of the base and she keeps kissing me (dream kisses are goooood . Anyways, we get to talking about the dream itself and then she kisses me a lot and then I tell her she must have forgotten that she was mad at me, she looked stunned and ran away. The kiss had made me lose stability and when I was shocked that she ran away I forgot to restabilize. Meh, I can DEILD.

      Dream Title: basic TOTM
      Dream:
      I am back at the beach, but this time I am on the beach, I can't find my wife... Think... Aha! it is cold and she went inside. The weather follows my lead as I run up the slope back to the army base. It starts snowing! I don't feel the cold, but I stabilize. I walk up to the glass, now covered in ice. Basic TOTM! I think, break something! I slam my fists into the glass and think about how strong I am in dreams and how fragile the glass should be since it is frozen. So it shatters into a million pieces. WOOT! I stand next to my wife. She is still a little frustrated because of the last dream. Still don't know why she would be mad at me.I have flashes of a dream that might have happened before all these dreams. I am still unsure of it, so I left it out. She is also frustrated that I broke the glass. She said she wanted to go somewhere warmer. I told her that you can have anything you want and you choose to go "anywhere warmer?" she says yes. I tell her that I can teleport her there. Crap! I think I need to teleport someone else, not just myself... this could be difficult. I shut off all the lights and the whole place goes dark (yes, the sky too) I keep rubbing my hands together and keep stabilizing. Warm place! Agrobah!

      KABLAMPH! We are here. She thinks that I was being sarcastic about this and looks angry at me (my real wife would have been a lot happier ). I turn the light off. Happy with myself that I had transported two people, but also extremely thirsty, so I didn't want to go there either. I turned the lights off and couldn't think of any place to go. I started losing the dream and just rubbing my hands together wasn't doing it, I needed light and a place to go. I created some fire in my hands and lit the infinite void that we were floating in. She asks if I can just change the settings. I think that I could just put my right hand in front of me and create a menu like in Sword Art Online... Sword Art Online! Aha! We pop up there in all its animated glory. I start walking and notice someone breathing in my ear... hmmm. I wake up.

      My wife is blowing in my ear accidentally, we fell asleep pretty close. I look up and watch the TV. It is a game where they seem to be pulling out numbers at random and ROFL pops up. The host decides to do this and starts rolling on the floor laughing. Interesting. Then I wake up.

There was a ton of girls on balconies looking at me and I realized that there is only girls DCs here.

      FA!!!!
      I wake up to the sound of a dog barking. My wife tells me to go check what is wrong. I tell her we don't have a dog and she said it was the neighbors dog and she heard something in our house. I try the lamp, and nothing. I get up and try the light. Nothing. Power must be out because of the ice storm. My wife tosses me my phone. I look in the hallway and don't see anything. I turn and check the bathroom. As I check it I think that someone could have gotten behind me while I went in there. I ran out and looked in the bedroom. A hooded figure stood over the bed and my wife didn't see it. She was looking at me. I ran over and tried to tackle the figure. It ducked and I landed on my back on the other side.

      Dream:
      I am driving to the DV Convention and I look over and see a man in my passenger seat. I realize I have already driven to this and it is morning (in dream). I know that means I am dreaming. I look around. I am driving across a canyon. I am on what would seem to be a plateau that has a "kansas" vibe to the sunrise, but there are no trees, it is old fashioned kansas.
      "Do you like seeing what you made?" He asks
      I laugh and look in the canyon. (canyon on left, kansas on right) There is a river and trees down there, but the river is so blue, and the trees are every color (mostly green, purple, and blue, but there was some red and yellow thrown in). I stared down there for a while and then woke up.

We don't want it in a huge city with tons of DCs. I wake my wife up and somehow all her clothes disappear. I freak out a bit, even if it is a dream, I don't think my wife would want to walk around naked with me and the people that got lucid tonight. That would be embarrassing. I start thinking of ways to get her some clothes.

      This is the dream that made me decide to pick up lucid dreaming, I had not ever tried any methods for lucid dreaming except one time before a year earlier.

      I am on a trip away from home, the dessert around me as dry as anything and the only thing that I can think of is this girl that has grown attached to me. She is short and nice, but very shy, I did not get a name because she didn't talk much. The city around reminds me mostly of Favela (like in modern Warfare, and real life). It seemed like I was in the dream for about a week, so I have no idea how long this actually lasted.

      Me and this girl are trying to get away from the group so that we can talk and start going around this abandoned building. We are exploring empty corridors and just having a good time. The rest of the group caught up to us with some sort of tour guide and I stopped paying attention to the girl for one second and she ran away because there were too many people. I chased her down and that is when things changed in my mind.

      I haven't followed a girl like this for a while, but she seems awesome. Why haven't I been going after girls? I thought. Wait! I am married, that is why I shouldn't be looking for a girlfriend. Then this must be a dream! I stopped and looked around. There were two roads ahead of me, one that the girl just took on the left, and an identical one on the right (everything still seems like Favela)
      I shouldn't chase the girl down now that I remembered that I am married, I should go the other way. I turned right.

      I jump over a fence after the turn and find myself in a backyard, the grass is perfectly green, the houses seem to be made of mud, but they are shining somehow, everything is extremely vivid. In the back yard there is a Rose, it was the most beautiful plant I have ever seen. The stem and leaves were the darkest black and the rose the brightest red. It was perfectly centered in the square backyard, and I looked at the house next to me as well. Every backyard had the same layout with the same rose in both directions, and it seemed to go on to infinity.

      I felt myself waking. It had been forever since I had read about dreams, I couldn't remember what to do to stay in a dream. I thought maybe spinning was one so I started spinning very slowly, but as I did an old man came up to me from the front yard.

      "You must be like the flower if you wish to stay" He said, and then went back the way he came. I stopped spinning and looked at the beautiful flower again. Then I awoke.
